Yes, Mike Rhoades would be a great candidate. He has helped bring VCU to national stardum, and before that, was tremendously successful at the Division III level as head coach at Randolph-Macon. However, the name to look for is New Mexico assistant Craig Neal. He's a former Georgia Tech standout under Bobby Cremins and has been Alford's right-hand man during the tremendous run for New Mexico. Plus, his younger brother Shane played for Mack McCarthy during the Moc glory days of the 1990s and still has a lot of pull within in the UTC community.
As a UTC alum and long-time Moc follower, the man I want as the next UTC basketball coach - New Mexico assistant coach Craig Neal! His younger brother Shane was a part of the Moc glory days of the 1990s under Mack McCarthy and he still has a lot of pull with the athletic department and alumni affairs. Craig Neal was a standout at Georgia Tech under Bobby Cremins, played a few seasons in the NBA and has been Alford's right-hand man for the last few seasons at New Mexico. He would be perfect to bring back the old Moc glory to the ROUNDHOUSE!
